About the Book

For Jung, who was born in 1875 and died in 1961, the “digital age” remained in potentia, but even more than half a century ago, he had significant concerns about the challenges of a growing mind/matter split and the excessive focus of western cultures in particular on science, technology, and rational thinking.

Jung believed this trend toward “modernity” emerged at the expense of more soulful, reflective, poetic ways of being and issued a strong caution against our increasing reliance on machines and technology. He warned of severe consequences that might ultimately propel our civilization toward collapse, unless modernity could be adequately acknowledged and dealt with from a psychological view.

Social media, video gaming, virtual reality, digital media, screen time, mobile devices, electronic music, “smart” technology, and electronic waste are all imperatives in our current culture, and will continue to be future realities for decades, if not centuries, to come. What is asked for is that we re-boot our understanding of the psychological and soulful aspects of technology in order to adopt a new way of being in a digital world. To do this, We must increasingly look with an archetypal eye.

The authors in this anthology proffer a chance to redeem ourselves, to re-invent our relationship to the digital age and re-infuse these sacred tools with meaning and soul.

Good afternoon my depth friends - unfortunately I was unable to attend this great discussion too due to a family medical emergency.  We are back now and I am so grateful Bonnie...that you were able to capture these two discussion in audio/video format which I can access on YouTube.  Peace + Love Linda

Huge thanks to everyone who attended Saturday's event! We'll try to put out the video recording in the next couple of days.

Yes, wonderful talk from everyone!  Suggest an easier, more interactive vehicle than "Zoom" (wouldn't work on my Mac).

This hive mind is pushing all to greater crossing of liminal boundaries.  As metaphor becomes the language, the bridges develop intelligently.  

Maintaining sense of Self, perhaps legally, becomes important in all this.

Thank you for this event. It's fascinating to compare viewpoints coming from different generations and it becomes obvious how far reaching the implications are for all of us - those who lived before the 0 and 1 changed our lives and those who grew up with it and can't imagine a world without digital immersion. Looking forward to Saturday!
